In tough economic times, everyone feels the pinch, and schools are certainly not immune to the sharp squeeze in funds.

Therefore, in response to the changes in funding rules for high school activities, which have made it more expensive to travel and participate in festivals and competitions, the four choirs at Los Alamos High School and the LAHS Choir Booster Club are rolling up their sleeves and exerting some fundraising prowess.

The Winter WaffleFest will be held from 8 -10:30 a.m. Saturday at the Masonic Temple.

The members of the Masonic Temple as well as choir members will cook and serve Belgian waffles, bacon, sausage, eggs and beverages.

Additionally, the students will provide some entertainment while participants dine.

Paula Nichols, choral director, said most of the proceeds will go toward the booster club account. However, revenue from advanced ticket sales will be used for a trip to Anaheim, Calif., in March. The students will compete in a competition and hope to visit Disneyland.

Nichols said the idea for the breakfast came from one of the booster club members who is involved in the Masonic Lodge. It is the first time the choir has hosted the fundraiser.
